Buying Land from Ejidatarios

The bottom line is when you have a "Deed" or "itle" or whatever you want to call it is duly completed and you will actually "own" the property. These pieces of paper that people are waving around as Titles are more like a Bill of Sale and do not convey full ownership. Mexican Real Estate Law is different from that in the U.S.A.

Once again I would think it a good idea to do a google search "Is it possible to buy ejido land in Mexico".

And, Rob, I don't mean to say what your wife is doing is illegal or is even under a shade of a cloud. What I am saying is until a person completes the entire complicated process thru a Notoria they do not have clear and unencumbered property. Just one off the many steps is to pay and have proof of payment of all property taxes-many "buyers/sellers" do not do this important and property taxes in arrears can amount to tens of or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
